Cabaret at The Merc’s Summer Series ends with the Tony Award-winning musical sensation, SPRING AWAKENING!

Back by popular demand, The Barn Stage Company’s production of Spring Awakening returns to Temecula this Thursday after a sold-out run last summer at The Mercantile Building in Old Town. This time the show will run Thursday through Sunday for two weekends at The Truax Building in Old Town Temecula.


Directed by J. Scott Lapp, with Associate Direction & Choreography by Evan D’Angeles and Musical Direction by Mike Kestler, this Tony Award winning show is a rock musical adaptation of Frank Wedekind's 1891 expressionist play about the trials and tribulations, and the exhilaration of the teen years. Spring Awakening explores the confusion and desperation that ensue when the onrushing tide of hormones meets the ignorance of children and celebrates the unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood with a power, poignancy, and passion that you will never forget. 

Artistic Director J. Scott Lapp says “If you missed it last time, don’t wait to get your tickets!”


You can catch the preview show at 8p.m. this Thursday, September 17. Show opens on Sept. 18. through September 27. Times are 8p.m. Thursday through Friday, 2p.m. & 8p.m. on Saturday and 3p.m. on Sundays. The shows are at The Truax Building, 41923 Second Street, Temecula, CA, 92590.

Tickets are $30 and can be purchased by visiting or or by calling the Old Town Community Theater Box Office at (866) 653-8696.
